For an in-depth exploration please read our glutathione review article here. Glutathione has a multitude of protective benefits. Read more about 14 ways glutathione can benefit you here.
Glutathione is often referred to as the body’s “master antioxidant.” It fights against “oxidative stress”—a condition that is a natural byproduct of your metabolism made worse by toxins like chemicals and heavy metals from air, food and water we ingest. Oxidative stress is caused by the production of free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS). These are fancy medical terms, but the bottom line is they cause oxidation or “rusting” and inflict harm to everything they encounter. Left unchecked, these molecules damage cell membranes and DNA causing damage that generally overruns your body. The results are all of the downstream effects we experience as illness and aging: more wrinkles, less shiny skin, lethargy, fatigue, “brain fog” and even chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and more.
In optimal conditions your body naturally produces enough glutathione to counter the free radicals and ROS produced by your metabolism. Unfortunately, few of us live in optimal conditions.
Clearer thinking, improved energy - Supports cognition and may offer brain protection.
Decreased Inflammation - Studies show that glutathione may help decrease inflammation—a primary contributing factor in joint pain, brain fog, heart disease and metabolic syndrome.
Brighter Skin - Glutathione may gradually lighten skin by reducing the skin pigment melanin while and some studies show it may diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.
Physical Performance - Supports exercise performance and recovery by optimizing levels of nitric oxide (NO) and may decrease lactic acid accumulation in muscles.
Improved detoxification - Glutathione can help elimination of toxins and chemicals ingested or absorbed by your body through daily living in our modern polluted world.
What is the difference between the liposomal glutathione liquid and the liposomal glutahione softgels?
The liquid works faster than the softgels because the softgels have to open which delays onset. The liquid has more phospholipids (PC Complex), 500 mg versus the 350 mg of the softgels. The PC complex has its own very therapeutic and nutritional effect potentially lowering cholesterol, aiding in cardiovascular health, enhancing focus and alertness and balancing the autonomic nervous system. However, liquid glutathione has a sulfuric taste that some people can't get used to despite the citrus flavoring. The liquid also has to be refrigerated after opening. The softgels don't have to be refrigerated and don't have any taste. They are great for taking with you on trips, at work, etc.
Will I feel more energy?
Many people do feel more energy immediately. Others do not feel much of a difference. Those who have higher levels of chronic inflammation, fatigue, chronic illness are more likely to feel an immediate difference in energy levels than those who are healthier. Glutathione continues to work regardless of how much "energy" you feel. It has silent effects on detoxification and cell metabolism.
What is the shelf life?
The shelf life is 24 months after the Manufacturing Date (MFG). Some bottles have the MFG and the Expiration Date (EXP) printed on them. Newer batches only have the Expiration Date printed on the label.
Do I have to refrigerate these?
Yes, once the seal is opened it is recommended to store the bottle in the refrigerator. With the bottle sealed there is no need to refrigerate as the bottles are nitrogen sealed and protected from oxidation even if the bottle goes through exposure to heat.
Can I take multiple doses? Should I take multiple doses at once or split them up?
Dosing is individualized and is probably best in split doses to maintain levels. Avoid taking over 3000 mg total of PC Complex (about 6 servings).
Does it significantly lighten skin?
The effect on suppressing the melanin (pigment) in skin is quite variable and very gradual. If suppression occurs, it will likely take weeks to months to notice. Glutathione binds and helps eliminate toxins and this effect can improve complexion as well.
Is this made here in the USA?
Yes. The product is proudly produced in an FDA registered, cGMP third party verified facility.
What does “China-Free” mean?
The term “China-Free” means the Glutathione and Phospholipids are not from China. They are sourced from non-Chinese sources and the product is made in the United States in an FDA registered, cGMP third party certified facility.
